3:00 am
so good to have your company, everyone. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. >> police in pennsylvania appear to be closing in on the man they suspect killed a state trooper, then wounded another a week ago in this ambush outside a state police bare ax. >> this was the scene just a few hours ago in bear township. law enforcement surrounded a home where they believe eric matthew frein is hiding. it's about 30 miles from the
3:01 am
site of the attack. >> earlier police exchanged gunfire with the man police thing was frein. people are being told stay in their homes, stay away from windows because this standoff continues to unfold this morning. >> frein is on the fbi's most wanted l eed list now with a $1 reward for information that leads to an arrest. he apparently cut his hair into a mohawk style before the shooting. >> he's a survivalist and known for re-enacting military. >> let's go to the white house now. because this is a pretty frightening incident. a man who was unarmed jumped a fence last night and made it into the building before he was caught just inside the doors. his mad dash across the north lawn was captured by this cell phone video. >> right now, go back. go now, into the park.
3:02 am
>> get back, get back. everybody back in the park. >> part of the white house was evacuated after this incident. the first family was not there at the time. but just four minutes earlier, four minutes, president obama and his daughters had boarded a helicopter on the south lawn bound for camp david. authorities have identified the suspect as 42-year-old omar gonzalez of texas. a man believed to be gonzalez was loaded on to an ambulance after the security breach, that's what you're seeing here. an official said that gonzalez had been on the secret service's radar, although officials would not say exactly why. we got this bombshell in the ray rice domestic abuse investigation. >> is it is ever. a source within the ravens organization here tells cnn the team knew about the video of the star running back knocking out his then-fiancee in an elevator
3:03 am
within hours of the incident. kristin lud lou joining us with more on this. >> reporter: good morning. you're exactly right. cnn has learned that the team's head of security spoke with atlantic city police shortly after that assault in february. in that conversation please described in detail the video recorded inside the elevator. espn reports those details were shared with team executives in baltimore. the network also claims that executive steve biscotti, kick cass and ozzie newsome then began campaigns pushing for leniency for rice on several fronts. from the judicial system in new jersey to roger goodell. the source inside the ravens' organization tells cnn the first time the ravens actually saw the video from inside the elevator was when tmz first released the recording. goodell broke his silence yesterday to face the media
3:04 am
about the rash of domestic violence issues that have rocked the sports world over the last couple of weeks. now the commissioner says he has no plan to resign and admits to making a mistake in his handling of the scandals. >> i hold myself to the highest possible standards. so when i make a mistake or i don't get something right, it bothers me more than anybody. i think the owners have seen that in me. i think they know that we have always tried to do the right thing. mistakes happen, and i'm sorry for that. and we're going to get this right. >> goodell announced that the nfl will overhaul its personal conduct policy because of that outcry over the league's poor handling of domestic violence incidents. he said that the league office will form a conduct committee and that he's actually willing to give up some of that judge, jury, executioner power that he's held for so long. the executive director of the nfl players association demarry smith, appeared on cnn's
3:05 am
"unguarded" with rachel nichols last night and said he welcomes the chance to get it right. >> is the union going to have any say in how that shapes out? >> hearing that they intend to have a discussion about overhauling that system is something that the union will have to be a part of. and we look forward to working with them and correcting the problems or the issues that we believe have existed with that policy for some time. >> the president of the national organization for women is calling for goodell's resignati resignatio resignation. in a statement, he did nothing to aid in confidence. >> rachel nichols grilled goodell at his press conference yesterday. >> he came at the commissioner hard asking question after question about how the league's handled this ongoing abuse scandal. >> check out part of the
3:06 am
exchange. >> commissioner, you mentioned robert mueller's investigation is key to solving all of these issues. i'm not going to sit here and discuss the integrity of the exdirector of the fbi. i can leave it as a given that he's man of integrity. >> yes. >> but the law firm he works for that will help him carry out that investigation is a law firl with extremely close ties to the nfl. you paid that law firm recently to help you negotiate television deals. the president of the ravens, who will be key in this whole investigation, worked at that law firm for more than 30 years. why hire someone with even the appearance of impropriety? >> i would respectfully disagree. you are now questioning the integrity of the director of the fbi. yes, that firm has represented us in the past, but they've also been on the other side in litigation against the nfl. so this is a highly respected
3:07 am
individual that served as director of the fbi, longest serving director in the history of that position. his credentials are unparalleled and unquestioned. >> part of the idea of this, i guess, is to restore public trust. even if they does a flawless investigation, isn't there an element here of you leaving the door open for doubt? >> well, rachel, unfortunately, we live in a world where there's a lot of litigation. there are a lot of law firms, a lot of people that maybe have had some intersection with us in the past. robert mueller has not. law firms may have. >> you mentioned on tv last week that you checked and tried to get the ray rice video. the atlantic city prosecutor's office said they don't have any electronic communication from the nfl asking for the video. can you give us the trail of how you did that investigation so people can know what you put into it? >> certainly our security department works with law enforcement. they're fully cooperative.
3:08 am
we gather almost entirely all of our information through law enforcement. and that's something else we're going to look at, rachel. is that the right process? should all of our information be gathered simply through law enforcement? we understand and respect what they go through and the job they have to do and there are certain restrictions that they may be under. we asked for it on several occasions. >> obviously we're going to continue that conversation throughout the morning as well. and talk to a branding expert. what does this mean for the ravens, the nfl? >> a lot of questions came out of that interview. >> no doubt about it. also more than a week after uva student hannah graham disappeared the charlottesville community is still trying to find her. we'll have new details about this case and why police may be one step closer to finding her this morning. >> also really dramatic rescue by some folks who you see here.

policy changes in the hopes of countering sexual assault in the league. searchers have found the body of a sheriff deputy whose car was swept away in floodwaters. she had been on patrol and checking low water crossings when she radioed for help. she was a everyone-year veteran of the sheriff's office. well, now it's law. president obama has signed legislation to arm and train syrian rebels to fight isis as the militants advance in syria and iraq. now, the president insists there will be no u.s. combat troops on the ground. house speaker john boehner said this week that may not be enough to defeat isis. >> i just think that if our goal here is to destroy isil, we've got to do more than train a few folks in syria and train a few
3:15 am
folks in iraq and dropping bombs. i just don't know that it's enough to achieve the objective the president outlined. >> bring in cnn military analyst lieutenant colonel rick francone in new york. if not now, when do you expect we'll see these air strikes in syria? >> yeah, we were hoping that we'd start seeing them already because, you know, you look at the situation on the ground in iraq and syria, isis is one target set. they're operating on both sides of that border, yet we're focusing our operations right now on the iraqi side of that border. what we're seeing is isis moving things back into syria. they're dispersing things out of their warehouses and putting them into the cities, complicating our target efforts tremendously. so right now focused on iraq, but we need to be hitting targets in syria as well.
3:16 am
otherwise we just dilute the effort. >> here's the question. you and several other military analysts we've had on said that you need to pair the ground operations with these air strikes. if it's going to take eight to 12 months to train these syrian rebels, are we going to start now? and what will be the cleanup on the ground if they're not ready? >> the whole syria side of this is the big problem, victor, because there is no boots on the ground. and if we thing that the free syrian army is going to be those boots on the ground, i think we're really deluding ourselves because if you read what the commanders of the free syrian army are saying, yes, we want the training, yes, we want the support, but we want to overthrow bashar al assad. we're not really interested in defeating isis. we just defend ourselves against isis. it will take a shift in their focus to go after isis. we're hoping they're going to do that. we're going to talk about a year down the road.
3:17 am
this is a big problem for us. if we conduct strikes in syria, there are no boots on the ground. it will be difficult now that isis has started to disburse all their targets into civilian areas. we'll probably cause a lot of civilian casualties unless we can get some eyes on the ground there. >> senators mccain, graham, several others have talked about the president's repeated affirming that there will be no u.s. combat troops in this fight against isis. my question to you, although it is an uncomfortable one to ask, should there be? >> well, it depends. if we regard this threat as a severe threat to the united states, if this is a threat to more than just american interests in the region, but if this is truly a threat to the united states, then we have to take this on as the united states, not this coalition and hoping that someone else will do our fighting for us. as somebody said, you can't
3:18 am
outsource your own security. if this is a threat, we have to address it. unfortunately at some point, as the chairman of the joint chiefs said, we may have to go back to the president and say, we need to put u.s. military forces on the ground somewhere, either in iraq or iraq and syria to make this happen. i know it's an uncomfortable thing, politically dangerous, but we have to deal with this ourselves. >> colonel rick francona, thanks for joining us. this is dramatic water rescue. look at all the people here coming to their aid. we'll tell you more about this one. also a british hostage appears in a chilling new isis video. he's not in the desert. he's at a desk. is isis changing its message now? and what do we read into this?

of war are beginning to intensify. >> he speaks perfect english. >> this is the end of every we get hold of. >> he could be arab and educated in the west, could be american. >> clearly isis had a calculated step to be able to put this guy on camera. why? because he seems american. the message is aimed at a western audience. and his intent is to, "a," project fear to the united states and, "b," to instill and give this sense of a projection of power. >> the entire video is pure isis propaganda, stylishly edited battle scenes featuring the enemy's heavy armor getting blown apart, but a crucial moment comes in the final minutes when the masked militant and his comrade readies their guns and appear to execute the syrians who dug their own graves. >> if this is a north american, it would be extraordinary because it would be first time that an isis war commander has

committed a crime on film. >> the fight hag just begun. >> how will they find clues? >> there will be voice analysis. they'll be looking at any particular accents they may have. anything that could tip off law enforcement where they can then pull the thread even further in terms of state and local to meet with some of the communities. >> did isis slip up and poesh this man by having him say and do too much on camera. maybe not. the value for them is in propaganda and recruiting. if this man gets captured or killed, they have plenty more westerners in their ranks. >> we want to get more perspective on this. the managing director for international corporate protection. will, thank you so much for being here. what's your impression of this latest propaganda message? >> as you were saying in the package, isis are very savvy in terms of trying to negotiate
3:36 am
their message. they're smart enough to try to put together what are seemingly professional videos, whether it be execution videos or the british journalist that was delivered almost like a video block right through though this most current video. they know that using the international media who are likely to propagate this is helping them serve their purpose in recruitment, but also establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with. >> who do you thing the messain message is intended for? >> they want to obviously show their capability and they want to show the diversity of recruits that have joined their ranks. ultimately this is a video to try to instill fear. secondly, it's also trying to appeal potentially to sympathizers. and they know beyond those recruits that they can gather to join their cause in theater, they are also looking for
3:37 am
support internationally. whether this be to possible and potential home grown terrorism that could be perpetrated in other countries. >> do we have any good assessment of how -- how well they have been able -- isis has been able to integrate themselves into other countries like the u.s., the uk? >> well, again, intelligence is quite limited at the moment. what we do know is they have a multinational recruitment. they have individuals from all over the world who have gone down to join their cause. inevitably whether they're being supported by those back home who are sending money, packages, affecting or assisting the communications or whether it be those internationals returning to their home countries later to perpetrate acts, quantifying it is very difficult. the estimates in the united kingdom it's in excess of 600, and that's 600 uk nationals that
3:38 am
have joined the fight. i think that's a conservative figure and we could be looking at certainly double that number. >> i want to get to another video that came from this british journalist john cantly. it's a dark background. he's seen just sitting at a desk. he's forced to read sounds that are almost like a plea for understanding. there's no knife to his throat. what do you make of this message? so different from what we've seen from them in the past? are they trying to say something differently, isis, in this instance? >> i think you're right, what we're seeing here with this british journalist who is presenting this video blog and who is threatening there are more programs that will be released and he'll be revealing more evidence about what isis' agenda is, there are details in this video that are concerning and especially for the european countries that have paid ransom for some of their hostages.
3:39 am
there's a very good likelihood that the european countries will be quaking in their boots as to whether thael be compromised in terms of the moneys exchanged for the hostages but which countries specifically have conceded to these terrorists. obviously the uk and the u.s. have stood fast and need to stand fast. ultimately we all know that any nation or government that actually concedes to terrorism and particularly to kidnappers by paying ransoms, particularly in a financial sense, are opening themselves up for open season for all oh their nationals in the future being kidnapped, not just by isis but other terror groups as well. >> appreciate you being with us. thank you, sir. it's been a week since university of virginia student hannah graham disappeared. now police say they want to talk to a man who may know what happened to her.

3:56 am
so we've now heard from nfl commissioner roger goodell. it's been more than a week. he said two things -- the most important, he's not resigning, and that he got it wrong. he admitted mishandling of the league's domestic abuse incidents and now a scandal. goodell faced reporters in new york yesterday. he apologized for dropping the ball. he's now promising to usher in sweeping changes. we've got a branding executive and the author of "the story of purpose" a book that's on my book shelf. thanks for coming back. >> thank you. >> most agree that the nfl has fumbled the handling of this scandal. is this good enough or is this at least a good start for goodell? >> it's a good start, but he's still on the defensive and this
3:57 am
game is not a game of defense. it's game of offense. we've got to tackle a number of issues. we've got to tackle the brand, the culture in football itself. >> so let's talk about this. >> yeah. >> is it possible that there is one element that if it's discovered, could be the end for goodell? let's say he saw the recording inside the elevator. is that the end for him or can he survive that even? >> this is not an endgame for goodell. this is really the opening of a most important issue that we're facing. this is a tragedy that this is going on, but it brings up this motion of abuse. frankly, a woman is abused every 15 seconds in this country. so that's on the field now. and that's the issue. it's not goodell. i mean, i don't know what's going to happen to him. but what's going to happen to the game is significant. again, the brand needs to take a stand against nonviolence. the culture needs to be tackled
3:58 am
and we need to start rewarding these players not for hedonism but heroism and for safety and for team and for partnerships. finally the most important part of this -- and it's bigger than goodell -- is the game itself. what's the purpose of football? the purpose of football originally was to exceed one's limits, not beat the other guy and take that lesson home. >> it seems that that is what many people are tuning in for now. the ratings are soaring. let me ask you about the endorsers, some of the corporate sponsors. we've heard from anheuser-busch, from procter & gamble. but they're not exactly stepping away. do you thing they will step away? >> no. this is the best news for marketers. and congratulations to procter & gamble and anheuser-busch. you know, companies are the new quarterbacks. and they're saying you're going
3:59 am
to play by a whole new set of rules, a much higher standard. i'm thrilled that companies are getting involved now saying you better step up or we're stepping out. >> joey reiman, branding expert. thank you very much for joining us this morning. >> thank you, victor. so much more news to tell you about this morning. next hour on "new day" starts right now. good morning to you. 59 minutes past the hour. i hope saturday's been good to you so far. >> yes, good start. i'm victor blackwell. it's 7:00 a.m. on the east coast. breaking news, police in pennsylvania appear to be closing in on the man they believe killed one state trooper and wounded another in an ambush a week ago outside a state police barracks. >> you're looking at the scene just a few hours ago. in barrett township here as law enforcement swarmed that rural area there in the poconos as they hunt for 31-year-old eric
4:00 am
matthew frein. >> jason carroll is in monroe county. what's the latest this morning? >> well, obviously, another tense moment in time here for the people here in monroe county. specifically those who live in and around the area of kennandenssa. shortly thereafter an alert went out warning people to stay off the streets and to stay in their homes. then the road blocks went up. road blocks going up. state police out there restricting movement in and out of the area. again at that point it seemed as if they had their suspect cornered, but once again want to point out that this man, eric frein, cannot be underestimated. he's a self-described survivalist, self-taught survivalist. he knows he's woods very, very
4:01 am
well, knows the backwoods, the trails very well. it could be very easy for him to slip in and out. having said that, investigators have been working what they call a grid pattern. what they're doing is trying to eliminate the areas where he has been and hopefully trying to eliminate the areas -- or prevent the areas where he can go. trying to restrict him to a certain area. they've said for the past few dayselieve he's in this area which is why things are still so very tense here on the ground. >> jason, his father said that he's so adroit as a marksman. has there been any effort to try to have his father speak to him publicly to try to get to him and make him turn himself in or help turn the tide here? >> absolutely. good question. let me just explain one thing for you here, christi.
4:02 am
they're restricting some of the information they're revealing to us for obvious reasons. they don't want to tip their hand. but also investigators believe that frein may have access to media reports. they're restricting some of the information they're giving us because they don't want it to get to him. >> jason carroll in monroe county following this for us. let's go to the white house where an unarmed man jumped a fence last night and made it into the building before he was caught just on the other side of the doors. his mad dash across the north lawn was captured by cell phone video. watch ten seconds of it. >> go back. into the park. go now, into the park. go back. get back, get back. everybody back in the park. >> part of the white house was evacuated after that incident. the first family was not there at the time. but just four minutes earlier, president obama and his daughters had boarded a helicopter on the south lawn
4:03 am
bound for camp david. let's go to erin mcpike who has more on this. >> as you pointed out, that first family was not here and president obama and his daughters had just taken off. but right after that, a man who was 42-year-old by the name of omar gonzalez did jump this fence out front, then he ran straight behind me to the north portico doors. he then made it inside those doors before secret service apprehended him. they then took him in an ambulance to the gw medical center where he's then being evaluated. after the fact secret service was seen here combing through the bushes to see if he had dropped anything. this man was unarmed. he wasn't holding anything at the time. so they didn't believe him to be as big of a risk, of course, but he was then taken to the ambulance. then as you mentioned a big chunk of the white house was
4:04 am
evacuated as well as the press. >> before this incident, were secret service agents aware of this man? concerned about his potential for going to the white house or attacking the family? >> well, what we understand from law enforcement is that this particular man is known to secret service but he's not been arrested before. those are the details we have. we don't know why he was known to secret service, but they did seem to know who he was. >> erin mcpike for us at the white house after this really scary incident. thank you so much. let's go now to the bombshell in the ray rice domestic abuse investigation. this seems to keep getting worse. >> oh, my gosh, yes. now a source within the ravens' organization, within the organization, tells cnn the team did know about the video of the star running back knocking out his then-fiancee in an elevator and they knew it within hours of the incident. >> kristen ledlow joins us.
4:05 am
>> now in that conversation, police described in detail the video recorded inside the elevator. espn reports those details were shared with team executives in baltimore. the network also claims executives including owner steve biscotti, president kick cass and general manager ozzie newsom then began campaigns pushing for leniency for rice on several fronts. from new jersey law enforcement to the commissioner roger goodell. they tell cnn the first time the ravens actually saw the eleva r elevator -- video from inside the elevator. the issues have rocked the sports world the last couple of weeks. the commissioner says he has no plans to resign and admits to making a mistake in the handling
4:06 am
of the scandals. >> i hold myself to the highest possible standards, so when i make a mistake or i don't get something right, it bother meese more than anybody. i think the owners have seen that in me. i think they know that we've always tried to do the right thing. mistakes happen. and i'm sorry for that. and we're going to get this right. >> goodell announced that the nfl will overhaul its personal conduct policy because of the outcry over the league's poor handling of domestic violence incidents. he said the league office will form a conduct committee and that he's willing to give up some of that judge, jury, executioner power that he's held for so long. the executive director of the nfl players association, demaurice smith appeared on rachel nichols last night and he said he welcomes the chance to get it right. >> is the union going to have any say in how that shapes out? >> hearing that they intend to
4:07 am
have a discussion about overhauling that system is something that the union will have to be a part of. and we look forward to working with them and correcting the problems or the issues that we believe have existed with that policy for some time. >> the president of the national organization for women is also calling for goodell's resignation. in a statement, terry o'neil said the commissioner, quote, did nothing to increase confidence in his ability to lead the nfl out of its morass. guys? >> thank you so much. >> thank you. >> here's a question a lot of people are asking, has the u.s. revealed too much to isis? >> military officials say the militants are changing their tactics. this ahead of potential air strikes. now what do we do? >> a major break in the disappearance of hannah graham. why police are zeroing in on a man they say may know what happened to graham in the final hours before she vanished. acid.
4:08 am
most of the time people are shocked when we show them where they're getting the acid, and what those acids can do to the enamel. there's only so much enamel on a tooth, and everybody needs to do something about it now if they want to preserve their teeth. i recommend pronamel because it helps strengthen the tooth and makes it more resistant to acid breakdown. we want to be healthy and strong through the course of our life, and by using pronamel every day, just simply using it as your toothpaste, you know you will have that peace of mind. big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on.

i hait's tough, but severi've managed.ease. but managing my symptoms was all i was doing. so when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
4:11 am
as the u.s.-led coalition ramps up its forces, they've targeted a boat. but now fighters are gipping to blend into the iraqi population making precision strikes increasingly difficult. let's talk about this with retired lieutenant colonel bob mcguinness. first of all, how do you target these fighters when we know they're infiltrated with civilian life? >> the only way you can do that is obviously have people on the ground that can sort out the fighters from the innocent civilians. we learn that clearly in iraq and afghanistan through our countersurgesy and counterterrorism activities.
4:12 am
that's why it's so critical that we get the iraqi forces the peshmerga, the syrian moderates that will be trained, that we get them trained properly and quickly so we can begin this. otherwise isis continues to grow and continues to be a danger for the entire region. >> speaking about syria, syrian, you know, arming syrian rebels specifically here, officer reese, lieutenant colonel rick francona was with us earlier, he said the commanders of the syrian rebels want the training but they've made it clear that they want to take down the leader, al assad. how do you train these militants to fight the fight that needs to be fought there against isis? >> well, the fight really has to work with what the u.s. is going to do is really help with the intelligence and operation infusion. training the fighters on the ground to pull triggers is easy.
4:13 am
the next piece is to identify the leadership, how do we find the intelligence to find these leadership and then coach, teach and mentor the syrian fighters and the rebels to work what we call a capture/kill type mission to go after the senior leadership of isil. >> general dempsey told lawmakers this week that the isis militants are adapting to the air strikes. how can we -- obviously if they're going to adapt, the u.s. and the world needs to adapt, but how do we do that to stay a step ahead of them? >> it is difficult, christi. clearly they're flowing with the events. finding them on the ground is going to take, as i said moments ago, the people that can sort out the good from the bad and presis air strikes, though very helpful as a complement to ground forces, there's no alternative but to have good people on the ground.
4:14 am
my concern with the syrian moderates is that we've trained iraqis, we've trained afghan es and others over the years and we continue to have them turn their weapons on us in limited numbers, but very important issue to think about. and to a certain degree we saw the same thing in libya. trying to get these syrians not to focus on assad but on isis is going to be, i think, the primary effort that we're going to have to encounter. and that's going to be very, very difficult. as we've seen isis just yesterday took over 21 villages in a city in northern syria and a flood of refugees went into turkey. these people are going to be tough to battle and they understand as they adapt to our tactics, this is going to be a hard slog ahead. even the director of the cia said yesterday, that this is going to be a generational fight, something that won't be easy. >> the president has been adamant that he's not going to
4:15 am
send troops on the ground into iraq or syria. colonel madda said you don't tell your enemy ahead of what you're going to do. do you thing the president reassuring the public that troops won't go in is compromising this fight in any way? >> i don't thing it's compromising the fight, what you're doing is backing yourself in a corner which i just don't understand. at the end of the day the president with all his advisers has to make a decision and says if this is a threat, we must do this. i understand that there were agreements made and there were promises made, but at the end of the day the commander in chief has to make a decision based on the well-being and the safety of the region and the united states. to back ourselves into a corner i just think is a bad mistake. >> gentlemen, we so appreciate your insight. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> have a good day. >> you too. oh, what a busy day it is
4:16 am
this morning. so with this obviously is not the only story we're covering for you. we have a lot for you in morning read. >> police in pennsylvania are hungered down all night in an area they believe an alleged cop killer may be hiding. >> eric frein accused of shooting to death one state trooper and injuring another in an ambush, that was a week ago. also a man made it all the way into the white house last night after jumping the fence outside the north lawn. this is video of him running across the lawn. secret service says 42-year-old ohmary gonzalez of copperas cove, texas, was not armed at the time. but part of the white house was evacuated after the incident and the first family was not there at the time. two executives have been found guilty in a food safety case. stewart parnell and his brother were charged with intentionally sending out peanut butter

graham. next new details about the case and why police may be one step closer to finding her more than a week after she vanished. >> you heard about the u.s. and how they had to scramble fighter jets when a group of military jets flew too close to the alaska coast. shades of the cold war perhaps people are asking. denver international is one of the busiest airports in the country. we operate just like a city, and that takes a lot of energy. we use natural gas throughout the airport - for heating the entire terminal, generating electricity on-site, and fueling hundreds of vehicles. we're very focused on reducing our environmental impact. and natural gas is a big part of that commitment.

morning in what's been a really agonizing week in the friends of family of hannah graham who is still missing. she left a dinner with friends last friday around 11:00 p.m. sent a text saying she was lost and has not been seen or heard from since. this morning this major break is one that has a lot of people asking, could police be one step closer to finding her now? i want to bring in jean casarez from cnn, she's joining us live from charlottesville, virginia, this morning. what do you know? >> reporter: they're expecting about 1100 volunteer searchers this morning. they can be expected, they say, to walk four miles. people from this community that care. and they want to bring this girl home. now, they're not going to search the wooded areas, as you might imagine and what we've seen in other searches, they're going to retrace the steps of hannah, where she was in the downtown area. this effort is being rallied by
4:23 am
the chief of police. his theme in all of this -- find hannah. >> i want to make one thing absolutely clear. this press conference and every press conference hereafter is about one thing and one thing only, and that is finding hannah. >> reporter: it was one week ago tonight university of virginia sophomore hannah graham suddenly vanished. today forensic investigators spent all day searching an apartment complex carrying out a number of sealed paper bags. police also searched and seized a vehicle at that same complex. >> we have every reason to bleeb that ms. graham was in that vehicle. >> reporter: they believe the man driving was a man seen in video surveillance early last saturday morning. >> an additional video shows that same black male with dreadlocks with his hands around hannah graham's waist. >> reporter: authorities say the two went into the tempo restaurant. >> he purchased alcohol there. we know that hannah graham was with him.
4:24 am
we also know within 15 minutes they were gone from that bar and that his car was seen leaving the area on video. >> reporter: police describe the man as black, 32 years old, 6'2", 270 pounds with dreadlocks. meanwhile, as investigators continue to pore over any leads, an na's friends focus on seeing her again. >> we can't really wrap our heads around all of this because you are such a vibrant presence and full of joyous love and life. we want to bring you home. >> reporter: last night when all the volunteers came here to regist register, one thing the police chief asked them how many of you thought elizabeth smart was dead and hands were raised. well, guess what? she was alive. let's go find hannah. i want to tell you both, we were at the john paul arena. this is the same arena -- i'm sure you remember this, that
4:25 am
morgan harrington, the last place she was seen alive at a concert here. another virginia tech student that went missing in 2009. >> oh, my gosh, jean, you're absolutely right. if they have a car, do they believe that that car is this man's and if it is, wouldn't they have his name? >> reporter: they've got his name. and they definitively said that he was driving the car. they believe it was his car. they believe she was with him in the restaurant. she believe she got in the car with him. they believe all of that. but they don't believe they have probable cause to arrest him. they're asking anyone in the community that if you saw them that night, which is a week ago last night into the early hours of saturday morning, walking around, getting into the car, getting out of car, they want to see demeanor. was she willingly with him, was she scared? that's what i think they want answers to. >> so they don't have enough to arrest him.
4:26 am
do they know where he is? are they keeping track of him? >> reporter: they didn't say that, but you and i know i'm sure they are. >> jean casarez, we appreciate it so much. >> it was a sprint across the north lawn that apparently ended in an ambulance. how a man managed to jump the fence and get into the white house. plus we're hearing from nfl commissioner roger goodell. more than a week since he said anything about the domestic abuse scandal. why he won't resign. co: sometimes you don't know you need a hotel room

4:40 am
chilling new isis propaganda video that's out. it threatens full scale war against american troops and on u.s. soil no less. includes a jihadist -- this is the part that's really alarming. a why i haddist that speaks english with a perfect american accent which begs the question has the direct threat to the u.s. homeland intensified now? >> is it more credible now. let's bring in the professor of political science at duke university and former adviser to presidents bill clinton and george w. bush. good to have you with us. president obama has been trying to mobilize public and political support for this war. some call it a war, some don't, against isis. has he made that more challenging? he's got to balance the message to the domestic audience and the message to the enemy and allies. >> well, victor, you're right. the polls show an interesting picture. they show support among the
4:41 am
american people for element of the president's strategy, but then they show that the public has very little confidence in the president overall and his handling of this. that's for the reason you ould. the president has made his job more difficult. four reasons. first president obama is his own toughest critic. if you want to find votes criticizing elements of president obama's september plan, you just have to go back to august or june or january when president obama himself was criticizing proposals of the sort he's now advancing. second, at the outset, they tie themselves in knots over whether there's a war, combat boots on the ground. this kind of rhetorical trap is all a result of the anti-bush refl reflex, they're determined not to look like the previous administration even when they're
4:42 am
acting like the previous administration. and that leaves them pursuing stories like war or not war. i think they haven't quite leveled with the american people about what the costs of the policy they've been pursuing up until now. they want to say that isil is not stronger today because they didn't act earlier, well then why should we change our strategy now and do the opposite of what we have been doing? that's tough to sell if you haven't leveled with the american people about the costs of the policy. fourth and most importantly, the president seems himself ambivalent about this. he seems not really committed to confronting isil. it's hard to blow the trumpet and lead everyone else into the charge. >> not only that, you have congressmen like jerriry nadler who said that isis is not a direct threat to the u.s. he voted against the legislation
4:43 am
to arm syrian rebels. something he said to our colleague wolf blitzer. >> this is a threat to us. but that threat to us is that people go to the middle east, fight with isis and then come back here to create murder and mayhem. but that threat is not dealt with by whether isis captured another province. it doesn't affect the magnitude of the immediate threat to us. that threat has to be fought with appropriate surveillance, counterintelligence, border control here and abroad. it's a counterterrorism operation, not a military operation. >> professor, do you agree with that? >> partly. he's right that you need to use all elements of national power. it's not just a military problem. there's an important role for law enforcement and intelligence. but what we're missing in that quote is that isil has already done grave damage to u.s. interests in the region and
4:44 am
threatens to could more. moreover, even though intelligence officials say they don't have current intelligence about an imminent plot against threats to the u.s. homeland, isil has all the elements to pose that threat going forward and in the most recent video that you mentioned has directly threatened to do so. it would be foolharder to downplay the threat to the u.s. homeland now. downplayeding the threat to isil has not made us safer thus far and won't in the future. >> professor peter feaver, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back.

4:49 am
self-we the comedian while she was under anesthesia. in a statement a source close to the doctor categorically denies the doctor took a selfie with joan rivers and categorically denies the doctor performed an unauthorized procedure on river. a different source tells cnn staff at the clinic told investigators she did take a photograph of rivers while she was sedated and she made a comment, paraphrasing here, that joan would get a kick out of this. more from that source about the medical procedures that day. staffers tell authorities the doctor begins with a laryngoscopy, a procedure that involves looking down the throat. next the medical director does an endoscopy inserting a camera down the throat and into the stomach. he sees something, he then attempts to do an laryngoscopy presumably to investigate.
4:50 am
at that point rivers' vocal cords begin to swell and she goes into cardiac arrest. the doctor was not certified to perform any procedure at the clinic. she denies that.admires by her y patients. it goes on to say because of her personal and professional policy she does not publicly discuss her patients. at this time the doctors and clinic are not accused of wrongdoing. three agencies are investigating. the medical examiner, state health department, and the federal agency regulating medicare payments to clinics. our source has investigators have not been able to talk with the doctor nor had access to her phone. it's unclear when all the investigations will be done. christi and victor. >> susan, thank you so much. were you one of the

4:57 am
undeniable in new york city. i can't even tell you. lines wrapped around blocks for almost miles. i could have sworn i saw you there. >> nope. sure didn't. >> let's dive in. a lot of people asking questions like you did, is it worth the upgrade? first things first unless you are under a tech rock it's the size. in the past the 5 and the 5 s had a 4 inch screen. guys, saying is this going to fit in my pocket, is it too big? i have to say despite its super sized profile it's actually very sleek and slim. and you won't be disappointed with either. also the battery life on these is absolutely incredible. it will get you through a full day which i know a lot of people welcome. and of course, i'm going to call it now i think one of the biggest features is this chip inside of 6 and 6 plus that's going to allow you to use your phone as a mobile wallet. rolling out in october whether you're at whole foods or mcdonald's you'll see people at the cash register paying for

music, anything on itunes can be shared by the family. you can leave group chats, send audio text messages. there's a lot of fun features with ios 8. it's worth the upgrade. >> you know, i think i'm going to move from my 4s to the 5s. i'm ready to make. >> sadly. >> i didn't want to buy the new charger. >> they look great, though. hope you had a great time with it. >> thank you. stay with us. we've got more after, well, actually more right now. >> let's take it. new hour, next hour of your new day starts right now. i got it wrong in the handling of the ray rice matter. >> mired in scandal, roger goodell finally breaks his silence, but is the nfl commissioner's apology and his
5:00 am
new promise, are those enough to save his job? >> helicopters just, police presence everywhere. >> it's quite disturbing. >> closing in on a suspected cop killer. police in pennsylvania say time is running out for one of america's most wanted men. >> right now. everybody in the park. right now. in the park. >> another day, another fence jumper at the white house. there have been several over the years. this guy made it inside the white house. how did this intruder get past secret service? >> good morning to you on this saturday morning. we're so grateful for your company as always. i'm christi paul. >> i'm victor blackwell. 8:00 on the east coast. we're starting with that breaking news in washington, the secret service just last hour preparing to conduct a canine sweep of the north grounds of the white house, erin mcpike was yards away when she snapped this
5:01 am
photo, saw them gathering in the background of her live shot last hour. didn't know why but we know they are going through this sweep of the north lawn. >> this sweep after an unarmed man, you saw him there briefly with the cell phone video, he jumped the white house fence last night, raced across the north lawn and was able to get inside the building. before he was caught. we should let you know the first family was not there at the time. and official tells cnn the secret service had been aware of 42-year-old omar gonzalez, they had never arrested him, and they haven't said a lot about what made them aware of him. >> let's try to get answers now. we've got daniel with us, a former secret service agent whose brother is a secret service agent. daniel, is last night's security breach a failure on the part of the secret service? >> i think it is. and i think they'll acknowledge that. you know, during my time in the
5:02 am
secret service one thing i found really rewarding about working there is they never tried to gloss over their mistakes. whether it was the reagan shooting, or the george w. bush incident or in georgia, the country of georgia, they always acknowledge right away this was a huge failure and here's what we're going to do. i can almost guarantee there's going to be operational changes. >> we saw that picture from this morning from a short while ago as we know that the secret service is conducting this canine sweep of the grounds. what is the purpose of that at this point? >> they want to be sure that this man that jumped the fence didn't drop anything, whether it be a small weapon or -- although it may sound out there to the general public, any kind of chemical, biological element or anything like that or anything that could be perceived as such. these are real problems for the secret service. they can't evacuate the white house when the president is there every time someone scales the fence so they want to be sure that the area is what they
5:03 am
would call sterile. >> you know about the positioning of agents who would be in that area. what's different about this is that the man made in the side the white house s. that attributed to possibly his speed or do you think because you know where these agents are maybe someone wasn't in the right space at the right time? >> not trying to be humorous. watching the video he wasn't exactly carl lewis sprinting into the white house there. i'm actually shocked by that. when i was talking to one of your producers, found out he made it in i was stunned. i never heard of such a thing. i've been there for hundreds of fence jumpers. and they never make it even close. we have dogs, there's multiple layers of security. there was a failure here and it could be as simple as, victor, an agent or uniformed division officer that just didn't see it and other people who weren't in positions to get in the way maybe on the roof or whatever couldn't mitigate that threat before it got to the door. either way it's a failure.
5:04 am
i don't think you're going to hear any different. >> daniel, how are things going to be different? are you surprised? we have been talking this morning we're shocked the guy made it in the house. >> yeah, i'm stunned. i think what they have to look at, we can't stick the president in an iron box. he is the president, he has to be out among the people. but i've always seen especially on the north portion of the white house, the distance to the front door is really short and contrast to the south portion. it's quite a run. you're not going to make it to the south doors. they have to do something with the fence. even if it's as simple as curving the bars over toward the street side, the pennsylvania avenue side, which would make it harder to scale, remember, time buys you options. and right now they don't have time. you scale the fence you're almost right at the door. >> yeah. we're going to need answers and hopefully we get those from the secret service. former secret service agent daniel bongino, thanks for joining us. >> let's talk about this developing news in the hunt for
5:05 am
suspected cop killer. police in pennsylvania do appear this morning to be closing in on the man they believe killed a state trooper and wounded another one in an ambush a week ago outside a state police barracks. >> just a few hours ago in bearic township. law enforcement swarmed this area in the poconos, hunting for 31-year-old eric matthew frein. >> jason carroll is in monroe county. what is the latest there? good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. as you know, last night that alert went out warning residents to stay in their homes, stay off of the roads, that alert is still in effect this morning and that's because officials believe that frein is still somewhere here in the area. but again, they believe that they are trying to corner him off, restrict his movement. all of this starting last night. that's when we started seeing the flurry of police activity at about 7:00. that's when we heard reports of
5:06 am
shots fired. shortly thereafter the alert went out, then the road blocks went up. we saw road blocks restricting movement of people coming in and out. very tense out here in monroe county during those moments last night. at one point around 8:00, there about, it appeared as if the suspect may have been cornered. again we keep pointing this out that frein is survivalist, he knows these woods very well, knows how to move in and out and so what investigators have to do is keep doing what they have been doing all week which is working this grid pattern if you will to eliminate spots where he may have been, try to restrict spots where he can go to try to corner him in. again, they do believe that he is still here in the area, they believe they are closing in on him. but once again, very tense moments out here last night. and again here this morning because eric frein continues to elude investigators. christi. >> jason, thank you so much. we're going to continue to
5:07 am
follow this throughout the morning if that is an active scene. i want to get you caught up on some of the other stories making news in the morning read. it looks as though we're seeing shades of the cold war. >> u.s. jets intercept add half dozen russian military planes, flying too close to alaskan air space. >> they didn't enter sovereign territory but did come within 55 miles. a u.s. official tells our correspondent it looks as though the incident involving planes, you're going to see, that are much like these coming up, with plans to coincide with the ukrainian president's visit to the u.s. and canada. >> didn't have those planes. we'll get those later. thousands of tourists visited cabo san lucas at the wrong time. now they are stranded. look at all of this. the hurricane that slammed into the mexican resort a week ago paralyzed air travel. for americans stuck there t state department is working with mexican and u.s. airlines to

arrange flights out. thousands have already been evacuated and thousands more are still waiting. >> listen. this is dramatic video you've got to see here. a real testament to when people get together they can do real good. take a look at what happened in salt lake city. >> oh, my god, yes. oh, my god. yes. they can't get it open. go through the window! >> three teenage boys were in that jeep. they allegedly were driving too fast on a bridge when the car crashed into the river there. you see it landed upside down and trapped them. all of those folks jumped into the river and helped turn it right side up. they saved those kids' lives. >> amazing they jumped in and

5:12 am
doubletree by hilton. where the little things mean everything. the reason i think that the president's strategy to combat isis has a chance to succeed is that the iraqi government finally includes sunnis who were representing those tribal leaders who were moderate and without whom isis cannot be defeated.
5:13 am
we can't win a land war in iraq. we proved that. but they can. and we can help them win it. >> that was former president bill clinton of course weighing in on the strategy against isis during an appearance on the daily show this week. during that interview the president former president, emphasized the importance of providing intelligent support to local ground forces. we've got with us a retired u.s. army officer, a former director for the iraq -- excuse me, the former director for iraq at the national security council during the obama and bush administrations now senior fellow at the new america foundation. off the top do you agree with former president bill clinton's assessment? >> certainly the last piece of it. he's absolutely right that there is no appetite for american ground forces. certainly there's no appetite for that in the united states but we've seen in the last week there is no appetite for that in iraq. we've seen statements stating
5:14 am
that under no circumstances should american ground forces come, but we've also seen a statement from the much more moderate ayatollah sistani, also cautioning against americans and other westerners coming into iraq in a military form. so there is no appetite for u.s. ground forces on either side of the atlantic. that said, as president clinton alluded to, we saw it at mosul dam, we saw it at sin jar mounta mountain. probably a u.s. authored plan synchronized by the united states, u.s. air power and support but the local forces providing the ground forces. >> that may be the plan in iraq. syria i heard the groan there as i said syria. as we move into syria that becomes more difficult when there is no group that's been identified that is not so
5:15 am
malyou'll that they don't have their own interest. i want you to listen to what congressman said this week, i think it's ted pope. let's play the sound. we'll talk about that first. >> we can look for this fight but once you go into it, you don't tell your adversary in advance what you're not going to do. we have the most skillful, most -- the fiercest and certainly the most ethical ground forces in the world and i don't think we should reassure the enemy in advance that they will never face them. >> so, those, skillful, fiercest, most ethical cannot be said about the free syrian army. we don't know much about them. what do you think about the plan to arm those rebels, it's now law. >> it is law, it's over to the president, in syria i've been doing iraq for 10 years. i never thought iraq would be the easy problem.
5:16 am
here we are with syria which is exponentially harder. we don't have a lot of good options in syria. in many ways we're looking for the least bad one. while arming the free syrian army is fraught, there's all types of danger involved, we don't appear to have any other good option for a way to move forward on the syrian side. and even then we need to be very realistic and eyes wide open about what's going to happen here. in iraq we probably have about, in the neighborhood of 300,000 fighters between the iraqi army, iraqi police and the kurdish peshmerga we can count on to help us execute a strategy in iraq. that's why i'm relatively sanguine about the iraqi side. syrian army about 5,000 fighters. that's just not a sizable enough ground force to move forward in syria. unfortunately really the only other way to grow it is for it to attract fighters from other groups in syria.
5:17 am
from the islamic front which describes itself as a syrian taliban, from al nusra, the al qaeda affiliate in syria. now some groups have affiliated with news ra and the front not because of ideology affinity. they have money, they have weapons. pulling some of these out is a good move. but as we start to move forward, now are we really comfortable with having someone in our sponsored free syrian army that was fighting with an al qaeda affiliate, 30 or 60 days ago. >> very difficult questions. you know, there's always that adage is my enemy's enemy my friend? that's a difficult question for the u.s. to answer now. >> these are hard questions. >> absolutely. thank you so much for speaking with us. christi. all righty. talking about torrential rain, flooding in texas. what's if weather going to be like today? we'll let you know. also, a virus is creeping across the u.s. now. it has the symptoms of a common

pleading not guilty. wayne huntsman is his name held on a $10 million bond facing one felony count of arson. the fire has now grown as of this morning to more than 76,000 acres and only 10% has been contained. texas and new mexico, they are looking at stormy weather this weekend. jennifer gray joins us now. how bad is it expected to be? >> it's still bad. we've had flooding for several days. central texas, south texas looking a little bit better except for extreme south texas around brownsville we'll pick up 2 to 4 inches. majority of the rain today is going to be in southern portions of new mexico and then extreme west texas. 2 to 4 inches, 3 to 6 on the outskirts of el paso. one more day this should be clearing up a little getting better after today. so looking at the worst of it being over in west texas, flood watch in effect. we also have a flash flood warning in effect right now, so things should be improving. i want to touch on the pacific
5:23 am
because we're watching tropical storm polo. we've seen pictures out of cabo. still very bad. we have video we can show you. cleanup going on. it took several days to even get pictures out of cabo. it was so bad so. they will be cleaning up for some time and then already having this next storm right offshore. so, this is going to continue to venture out to the north and west. it is going to stay away from cabo but we are going to still get windy conditions, we're going to have high surf and also rain over the next couple of days, guys. luckily they are avoiding a direct hit from this second storm. >> at least that, i guess, is good news. jennifer gray, thank you. today thousands of volunteers are expected to help search for missing uva student hannah graham. it's more than a week after her disappearance. police are now zeroing in on a man they say may know what happened the night she vanished. >> also the obama administration doubles down on its message.

meanwhile, u.s. air strikes have successfully hit another isis stronghold, a training camp south of mosul. we'll talk about the fight against isis. >> police in pennsylvania this morning appear to be closing in on the man they suspect killed a state trooper and wounded another. officers are scouring a section of the poconos where they believe eric matthew frein is hiding of it we know police exchanged gun fire with a man they believed was frein. residents are being warned. can you imagine, stay inside, keep windows closed. this all as the manhunt continues. >> three, cnn confirmed that within hours of the ray rice domestic abuse incident the ravens organization knew of the elevator video showing their star running back knocking out his then fiancee. that's according to a source within the organization. espn reports details were shared with team executives and including the team's president
5:29 am
who pushed for leniency from the judicial system in new jersey and the nfl commissioner. the ravens dispute the espn report and they promise to address the accusations next week. we will have more on this story coming up. stay with us. and four t white house is speaking out on the issue of violence against women as well, launched a new campaign to fight sexual assault on campuses. parents, we're the ones that need to step up. it's not just on the parents of young women to caution them. it is on the parents of young men to teach them respect for women. >> from sports to popular culture the president says society does not, quote, sufficiently value women. >> number five, one week after hannah graham disappeared more than 1500 people have volunteered to help search for her later today.
5:30 am
police have called on the community for help, of course after announcing a major break in this case. >> if that young lady's touched your life in any way you have the responsibility to help us find her. >> investigators have searched the apartment and car of the man they believe was with graham the night she disappeared. we'll continue to follow this story as well. the obama administration also insisting american combat troops are not going to go into iraq or syria. he has made that clear, time and time again. >> obama doubled down on that message on wednesday. listen. >> i want to be clear, the american forces that have been deployed to iraq do not and will not have a combat mission. >> so let's bring in a military historian, the president of the institute for the study of war. the math here and i'm no math
5:31 am
expert, doesn't work. okay. so cia estimates 21 to 31,000 fighters, most of them in syria. isis fighters in syria. general dempsey said it will take up to a year to train the first 5400 pentagon says maybe 5,000 every year after that. you wrote this in the new york times. allies can provide basic sport but the u.s., a unique power must be ready to commit even some ground forces if needed to face this threat. because those -- there is a huge disparity. the question is, how is it not possible or probable that some other troops than the syrian rebels will have to go in? >> the islamic state is a large enemy with a capable fighting force. as you said, up to 31,000 fighters, and those fighters are actually embedded in urban areas
5:32 am
such as the great city of mosul. or the city of raqqa inside. though the iraqi security forces and some of the moderate opposition have some capabilities to fight the islamic state, fighting inside of the cities and removing isis from the cities which is a real requirement for our strategy, is not something that all troops can undertake. and particularly not the iraqi security forces which are sectarian, and which can cause political damage. frankly, which are not ethically trained in the same way as some other forces. >> kimberly, former defense secretary leon pa net fa says the obama administration pulled troops out too soon.
5:33 am
what he told cbs. >> i think the president's concern and i understand it, was that he had a fear that if we started providing weapons we wouldn't know where those weapons would wind up. my view was you have to begin somewhere. >> so the first part of this, did the u.s. get out of iraq too soon and into syria too late? >> yes to both. the united states left iraq too soon, and the united states has missed opportunities over the past several years. actually, to help moderate syrian rebels. before they had fully radicalized and before, frankly, they were disappointed by the united states and its lack of support in the wake of the chemical weapons attacks in damascus last year. >> let's listen to congressman ted pope and talk about it on the other side.
5:34 am
>> what's a free syrian army rebel today is an isis member tomorrow. it's it new good strategic plan to arm syrian rebels. if isis is a national security threat then relying on rebels in a syrian civil war will not protect american security interest. >> how do you keep track of the weapons, kimberly? how do you keep them from getting in the wrong hands? >> weapons are already in the wrong hands. the islamic state captured high end u.s. weapons while taking the air field at mosul, for example. and while also expanding their control inside of iraq. the al qaeda affiliate al nusra fighting in syria has high end weapons and capabilities, in fact, the only force right now that does not have those high end weapons is the one force
5:35 am
that can provide a more moderate outcome to the syrian civil war if it is successful over time. we need to get the moderate opposition the resources it needs while being very cautious in estimating how quickly and how much that diminished moderate opposition can do in taking on the formidable enemy of isis. >> all right. kimberly kagan, we so appreciate your insight in this. thank you. >> thank you. so nfl commissioner roger goodell, he's talking. took him about a week. people were asking where is the commissioner? he breaks his silence, faces the media amid the domestic abuse scandal. >> were the answers enough to protect the league and even to save his own job?

i made a mistake. i'm not satisfied with the process that we went through, i'm not satisfied with the conclusions. and that's why we came out last month on august 28 and said we're going to make changes to our policies. we made changes to our discipli discipline. we acknowledge the mistake, my mistake. and we said we're going to do better going forward. >> that's nfl commissioner roger goodell. he is in front of reporters there admitting he made mistakes in the handling of the league's
5:40 am
domestic abuse scandal. now promising to usher in sweeping changes to counter domestic abuse in the nfl. goodell also said he's not going to resign despite calls for him to leave the post. sports business analyst ricky joins us from orlando. what's your take on the news conference? >> well listen. in a space of five minutes roger goodell completely admitted contrition, he confirmed robert mueller as an investigator, he appointed a former prosecutor existing prosecutor to define social policy, and he's giving money to help organizations, he's expanding his mandate to deal with crime of all kinds, sex crimes, child crimes, firearms issues, drug issues, but not enough. why? toxic environment, social media, prolif prolific. $25 billion business. this is a perfect storm we vrnt seen since 1905 when president teddy roosevelt threatened to
5:41 am
abolish football because of violence. 3 got through that then. let's see what happens now. >> goodell is good for business. the team owners love the guy. do you think that there is anything that gets this man to leave the post? >> well, i'm not sure about getting the man to leave the post is the issue. i was working with the nfl and him for a number of years, his father remember was a former senator from new york who believed in his positions, he is a law and order commissioner, and he understands that this issue needs to be part of a long term advocacy process where you get some consensus in. the process now is important. let's see what happens, victor action between now and the super bowl because that's the time table he set and remember, 41% of the avid fans in the nfl are women and according to media 67% of the women say they would rather miss a play than a commercial. so procter & gamble, visa, they all put the nfl on notice that's where the rubber hits the road
5:42 am
so to speak. >> they put the nfl on notice but no one has pulled that advertising as of yet. let's listen to hall of famer fran tarkenton calling for a boycott. listen. >> i think they should start writing letters, e-mails, and stop going to games. again, roger goodell getting fired is not going to solve the problem. the problem is going to be solved by 32 owners who control the national football league. >> ratings have been sky high since this all started. do you expect that a boycott is even possible? will that happen? >> well, the one thing we learned from opinion polls and everybody else is that in the middle of the week you can be significantly concerned with your social issues but everybody loves their football and that's not going to change. an $8 billion allocation from television, if you got a collect and you're an owner for $152 million in your mail box just from television alone, annually,
5:43 am
you think twice about making changes. but this is now a watershed time. this is now the press conference was a call for action in a corporate environment where society's got to deal with these issues as well. so, i'm saying let's reserve judgment until the super bowl, that's the commissioner's own time table. and see what kind of action is really on the table and if it's not there, then i think there are some significant consequences, by the way, it's not just the nfl. you notice that florida state decided to suspend jameis winston for the entire game against clemson for his behavior so it transcends all sports. >> let's go back to the incident that started all of this t ray rice incident at the rebel there in atlantic city. we've learned, cnn confirmed, that the ravens organization knew about that video within hours of the incident. and of course, there was some
5:44 am
request from the organization for leniency from law enforcement, from the league as well. what's the role of that new nugget in this story line? >> that new nugget will be compounded by a bunch of new nuggets that are advanced by cnn and everybody else. my personal trouble as a lawyer is that tmz got ahead of the news cycle and everybody was reacting to something but a fact is a fact and we have to analyze it. i would say no matter what the new nuggets are, let's see how robert mueller and his investigative prowess parses through the nuggets and decide what is the issues are. i'm not going to impune the credibility of the long standing former fbi director and even the two owners that are overseeing it are family owners from the steelers and the giants who have $3 billion collectively tied up in value of their franchises. i do think that investigation will be very detailed and pinpoint exactly what the nfl, what the ravens knew, when they knew it and how they acted and i
5:45 am
would like to reserve judgment until i get those facts. >> all right, rick horrow from orlando. always good to get your perspective. thank you so much. i want to tell you about this virus that's spreading across the u.s. and health officials are worried about it. you think it's the common cold because those are the symptoms, but this thing turns dangerous pretty quickly. we're going to give you a heads up. discover card. hey there, i just got my bill, and i see that it includes my fico® credit score. yup, you get it free each month to help you avoid surprises with your credit. good. i hate surprises. surprise! at discover, we treat you like you'd treat you. get the it card and see your fico® credit score. i have $40,ney do you have in your pocket right now? $21. could something that small make an impact on something as big as your retirement? i don't think so. well if you start putting that towards your retirement every week and let it grow over time, for twenty to thirty years, that retirement challenge

the ebola outbreak is having a frightening impact on the world. sierra leone has a three-day lockdown trying to stop the spread of the disease. people are not allowed to leave their homes. there are nearly 5,000 ebola cases in west africa, half of the patients have died. the u.s. is sending 3,000 troops to the region to build hospitals. to learn more about how you can help out visit our website, cnn.com/impact. there is the enterovirus that is popping up across the country. we know that since mid august the cdc confirmed 153 cases of this illness in 18 states, california's department of health reports four cases. what starts out looking like a
5:50 am
common cold turns severe really fast. take a listen to this patient. >> i just couldn't breathe at all. no wheezing or anything. just couldn't breathe. at first i thought i was going to pass out or die or something. >> poor guy. let's bring in dr. william shafner at vanderbilt university. so good to have you back with us today. when we say that it can turn severe, we saw he said that he couldn't breathe, he was wheezing, what other things can this turn into? how dangerous can it get? >> well, fortunately, most of the children who are infected with this enterovirus 68 don't get that sick but there are some that have difficulty breathing and it can precipitate asthma attacks. the good news is all of those children will be getting better. they will all be back in school next week. this virus is a bit of a surprise, came early, spreading across the country. but what we should also remember
5:51 am
is that influenza is coming. that's the one that's really serious, can make many children very ill. now's the time to get our influenza vaccination to prevent that very serious illness. >> get our flu shots. you say this virus will only last about a week but it's a virus, so is it spread by sneezing, coughing? is it easy to spread? >> it's very easy to spread. and exactly as you say, christi, sneezing, coughing, close contact, and opening schools bring kids back together again, in close confinement. that's the way to spread this virus. it's spreading all over the country right now. >> and i mean, i know you are chuckling so the good thing is even though it turns, as we saw from that patient, who really seemed distraught about it, you can imagine why if he's got that breathing -- the breathing equipment on, it's frightening certainly for them.
5:52 am
but i'm wondering since it's a virus, is there any way to treat it? >> there is no direct way to treat it but that child is getting treatment with supportive care and is making some of those children and their parents anxious, but the reassuring thing is they are going to get better. we've had no deaths associated with this virus. it's a tranjent visit to the intensive care but they will get better. >> doctor, what do you know about the flu that we are expecting, the strain we're expecting to see coming up in the next few months? >> so, we expect this year's flu strains to be similar to last year's. and that's very important because it affected once again children and young adults. so all of us, if you know the recommendation is, everyone in the united states older than six months of age should be vaccinated against influenza. now is the time to do it. there is abundant vaccines.
5:53 am
let's all get ourselves protected against this influenza which will be coming very soon. >> and in that way you will make dr. shafner's job easier. thank you so much for being with us. we appreciate it. >> thank you, christi. always feel better after he's on. >> i know. >> i just feel better. let us know what you think about the show and the stories we've been reporting. tweet us, we're on twitter, on facebook, instagram. start the conversation. we'll be right back. the eyes may be the windows to the soul. but in the case of the lexus ls... ...which eyes? eyes that pivot with the road... ...that can see what light misses... ...eyes designed to warn when yours wander... or ones that can automatically bring the ls to a complete stop. all help make the unseen... ...seen. and make the ls perhaps the most visionary vehicle on the road.
